The discussion board was being used... I had checked in on it.
Bravenet decides to just extinguish years of comments and information.
If you care about a good relationship with a provider.. Bravenet isn't the one you want.
Stay away and chalk it off as a discussion board that just doesn't care about you.
I bought a domain name from Bravenet on 6/3/2014. I needed to actually SPEAK with a tech support person because I was having issues and unable to do anything more until those issues were resolved. I couldn't find any information on my specific problem in the Bravenet forum or anywhere else. I tried to submit a ticket, but was told that Bravenet didn't support 'free' websites. I hadn't even been able to get in to BUILD a website! There is NO telephone number listed on the website that I could see, but I did a web search and found one here, and called. The operator put me through to Customer Support...voice mail. I called back, and got voice mail again. When I called back a 3rd time, there was no answer at the main number, even though it had not closed for the day. I will NOT be doing business with Bravenet, but I will let others know of my experience.
I have used bravenet since 2005. As an administrator on a Wordpress site and Joomla site, I prefer the ease of working with bravenet. I am rarely disappointed by their customer service as they always give prompt replies to questions and help me when I get stuck! Pricing is reasonable and apps are plentiful. I use bravesite pro.
About BravenetBravenet is the ultimate provider of a complete website solution including web hosting, site building, domains and free web tools.
It all started back in 1997. Dave, our founder, was building a website and was in need of a guestbook.
He combed the Web, looking for a decent free guestbook service, and came to realize that the few services available were either too hard to install, or too limited to be of much use. All he wanted was a simple, full featured guestbook for his site.
It was this simple realization that changed the Web forever. Dave set out to create the world's best interactive, fully customizable, remotely hosted tools for webmasters of all skill levels... and he succeeded.
Bravenet's dedicated and talented staff is continually developing exciting new services and upgrading our existing tools. We realize the Web is continually changing, and we continue to change and grow right along with it.

I had a rubbish old site sitting on their free service for years. they removed all the free sites but notified users by email, which didn't reach yahoo, gmail or hotmail users (half of global email) and now those people have to buy a year subscription in order to get their data. Customer support was really friendly throughout, but this has left a bad taste in the mouth as we're being held to ransom. Sounds like there are better hosts out there...
I signed up with this company 8 days ago and have not been able to get them to provide the FTP they sold me. Have not been able to contact anyone other than through a service ticket support email that refuse to address the issue. They blame it on the computer and then the stand alone FTP client they suggest users download and will not provide the simple details for using any client. you can use their free site builder and it will show on the web as long as you use a sub domain instead of your own. I won't go as far as calling then a complete scam, but definitely incompetent or marginally dishonest. There is no contact method on their site except the support link, but you don't realize that until the problems happen.
I have 3 different Bravenet accounts, each one dedicated to it's own website.
Mysteriously, all 3 of them went offline at the SAME TIME and said I had exceeded my bandwidth and that I needed to purchase paid hosting. Coincidence?
Nope, it's a strait up scam and I caught them in the act. There's nothing coincidental about 3 websites exceeding their bandwidth at the same time, especially since 2 of them don't use any bandwidth at all.
I would gladly take my files and move to another host, but apparently, Bravenet doesn't want me to leave because they're holding my websites hostage. I can't even access FTP to download my files unless I pay them their ransom money.
So, in further token of my appreciation for all of the great things Bravenet has done to extort money out of me, I have take the liberty upon myself to use my own "mafia like" tactics to expose these criminals. It's summer, school's out and I have nothing better to do than to sit around posting this message on all [read more...]
I attempted to host with Bravehost. I started transferring my current blog over about legitimate PTC sites. Two blog posts in, my account was deleted by them. They gave me no indication why, no warnings, no anything. My account was gone, just like that. Thankfully I hadn't given up my current hosting site yet, I'm glad they did this before I gave them any money (I was going to upgrade my account once all my information was transferred over) and before I gave up on my current host. I contact their customer support, and not only have they not replied, my ticket is still "unassigned". They are the worst hosting company I've EVER dealt with and I caution you to stray from them. If you refuse to listen to this, I plead with you to at least have a back up of your data prior to posting it with them. They have no issue deleting everything suddenly without warning.
After the account deletion, I couldn't access ANY page on their website prior to clearing my cookies/cache. Every page just [read more...]
Bravenet does have downtime sometimes, but not for very long in my experience. Also, if you have questions you can visit their forum. Although sometimes the answer isn't there (it's more of a social place where customers help customers) you can open up a help ticket. I did that once and I got an answer [read more...]
them for about 3 - 4 years and i hope 20 - 30 more.
They don't offer different size plans because all there plan except
the free is professional without advertisements all though you could
double your hosting if you ever needed to.
They do give you so much space, 30GB + Everything else couldn't get
much better except it don't come with a Cgi bin or have mfgg installed.
Most people won't use a Cgi bin or Mfgg anyways so i never have that
problem maybe once where i wanted to use a Cgi bin but didn't know
how so i figured out how to do the same think using Php instead.
Bravehost rock thats all i have to say, Thanks Bravehost - we love you
I would recommend Bravehost.com better known as Bravenet
to anyone looking for a professional compatible webhosting.
There so awesome i dunno you will just need to see for yourself...
